Colored Symphony


(ISO 100, f/2.8, Shutter Speed 1/50 sec)

Shot on Diwali, arranged the colored wax diyas on the centre table (round) to get this angle. Focus on the part where Blue and Yellow ones touch.

Post Processing : Cropped, Contrast increase, Saturation toned down.

Gorgeous picture!
But, I'm afraid I don't understand the reason for focusing on the point where the blue and yellow diyas touch each other. Could you please explain?

Well...here is the thing....the colors are not really expressive. See Deepak, i am no photographer and hence I can not use any technical lingo here. From a creative perspective...they are merging...at an odd angle. I can barely make out the flame...what's the beauty of the diya's if you can only guess the flame? Then they are supposedly melting and ready to fall down. It kind of looked...well...flame and fire should always inspire hope...these seem to be losing their own ground.

A blue dot in the second diya looks kinda out of place...the pink which would have rendered an amazing contrast to the blue seem to be loosing it's hue to the copper tinge...

I would have looked at the picture and thought of it as a symbol of loosing grace rather than diya's of diwali that inspire hope and faith!

I guess i have tried to put it in words...that is exactly what I had felt when I saw it...that is as honest as I can get.

It's like true every note if seperate make no symphony...but if you rush through then...they make more noise than music!

Oh it's BRILLIANT!!! I feel so weird using the same few adjectives for all your pics... but then, can't help it! This is what comes outta my mouth first. But this one (and the 'Journey back home' one) have got to be my favourites so far. This is simply superb.
